an environment must fit the range of people who fall between the 5th percentile of women and the 95th percentile for men. In designing an assembly worktable, the sitting knee height must be considered, which is the distance from the bottom of the feet to the top of the knee. Males have sitting knee heights that are normally distributed with a mean of 21.8 inches and a standard Deviation of 1.2 inches. Females have sitting me heights that are normally distributed with a mean of 19.3 inches and a standard deviation of 1.1 inches. What is the minimum table clearance required to satisfy the requirement of fitting 95% of men?

Question

A common design requirement is that an environment must fit the range of people who fall between the 5th percentile of women and the 95th percentile for men. In designing an assembly worktable, the sitting knee height must be considered, which is the distance from the bottom of the feet to the top of the knee. Males have sitting knee heights that are normally distributed with a mean of 21.8 inches and a standard Deviation of 1.2 inches. Females have sitting me heights that are normally distributed with a mean of 19.3 inches and a standard deviation of 1.1 inches.

What is the minimum table clearance required to satisfy the requirement of fitting 95% of men?
